MEDICAL OBSERVER By Peter Hay

 

‘Being Antipodean means we sometimes do things upside down. One of them is drinking dessert wines with, well, desserts. Sounds daft but our confrères in France look for contrasting flavours that heighten the experience, hence the habit of drinking these wines with either foie gras or blue cheese. Sounds weird but it’s a marriage made in heaven as with this lean stickie, which isn’t too cloying and is chocablock full of delicious tropical fruits and ginger highlights. Next time you have some people over try this combo and challenge the status quo inside out and upside down.’

‘Try this delightful Dolcino…with its honey, beeswax, florals and orange peel notes – think crystallised ginger. A lovely and easy drinking style…’

‘Made from Viognier deliberately unpruned to encourage botrytis strike, it has a prickle all its own in that alluring pickled ginger fragrance. It’s fluffy of texture, but that cushion, with its appropriate sweetness, is neatly offset by considerable high-country acidity. So sure, take it with your afternoon paté on toast, even with contrasting crudités or giardiniera, or try it for elevenses with Haigh’s ginger chocolates.’

HALLIDAY WINE COMPANION By James Halliday

 

Elegant medium-bodied cabernet…no attempt to over-extract or over-elaborate.This is just what the terroir should give; varietal fruit expression in a demure red berry fashion; fine earthy tannins, just so.’
